Hotel is a five minute walk to shrine. Comfortable room, friendly staff, lovely dinner. Short taxi ride from bus station 5-10 euros. Plenty of local shops and a bar close by. Would stay again and have recommended to family and freinds

The Catolica Hotel is just 5 minutes walk from the Sanctuary. It is a very hospitable hotel. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The restaurant staff were excellent and the meals were pretty good. They made it a point to vary the menus for lunch and dinner, during the 3 days we were there. The Hotel gave us free drinking water. WIFI in the room was very convenient.

Walking distance to the church/shrine, the Bedroom & Bathroom was clean, the staff was friendly and willing to assist at all different times, must commend the restaurant staff, the hotel itself small. But being close to the church was ideal.

Room Tip: A room with two double beds has more room

This was my first visit to Fátima as well as being my first participation in a pilgrimage. I will not dwell on any aspects of the actual pilgrimage as this is a hotel review site.
There are apparently thousands of hotel beds in the town, so the Catolica has a lot of competition. Other hotels are slightly closer to the Domaine. Other hotels have upmarket facilities (spa, gym etc). Other hotels are marginally cheaper. Many hotels are significantly more expensive. Some have restaurants and bars, some do not. Some will have a view, others will not.
Catolica gets the balance between all of this perfectly correct. From a warm welcome at reception, through entering a comfortable ensuite bedroom with a balcony and a view of the Basilica to experiencing a wide range of Portuguese cuisine prepared and served by very competent staff, everything is "right". Dietary needs were met without question and wine flowed freely as part of every meal. Other staff were always available to answer queries and provide information.
An excellent few days!

Room Tip: 3rd or 4th floor, facing the square

Room was spacious because I was sharing with my two aunts.

Safety: do not leave your passports at the counter because I noticed the counters are not attended at times during lunch time.

Eco-friendliness: lights along the hallway automatically switch off. Don't panic!

Food: food service staffs are friendly. Food was okay.

Location: in the heart of many religious articles shops. The pharmacy is right next door. A market (mainly selling fruits) takes about 5 minutes to get there. The real supermarket is about 20 minutes away.

Wifi cannot be used in the room. You have to go to the hallway to use Internet.

Stayed: May 2015, travelled with family
